A Dog's Tale


Published June 18, 2008


LibriVox recording of A Dog's Tale, by Mark Twain. Read by Aaron Elliott.

This short novel of Twain’s, from 1903, is told from the point of view of a loyal and beloved family pet. Themes of heroics, valor and heart-wrenching tenderness fill this work. The story is also filled with happy events as well as sad ones and is ultimately about what dogs are to us … best friends. A Dog’s Tale is quintessentially Twain. (Summary by Aaron Elliott)

Subject: Not just Sad Events, Horrific Events
The description of this tale is misleading and while it is Mark Twain, it has a horrible description of animal cruelty by the father in this story. Not only does he kick the dog who is saving his baby from a fire, breaking the dogs leg, he experiments on her puppy causing it to bleed, go blind and then die. I would not recommend this story to anyone.
